Having returned last night from this hotel I find it hard to believe I was in the same one as the previous two reviewers!
We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist at 10.15pm on Thursday, the entrance is very nicely furnished and welcoming, our room 201 wasvery clean and beautifully appointed. It was a corner room overlooking the back of the hotel and was incredibly quiet - I'm a really bad sleeper and had no problems at all.
We didn't eat there but did have drinks and found no problems with any of the staff we met, in fact just the opposite, all from bar staff to cleaners had time for a smile and a laugh.
We found a small cafe just up the street called Cafespresso where they served really nice cooked breakfasts or for something lighter, Cafe Cork just round the corner going towards Patrick Street.
The hotel is in a great location, we went to the theatre on Saturday night which is about a minute away, ate in town a couple of nights which is less than 10 minutes walk .and on the last night at Greenes in the hotel opposite.
I honeslty couldn't find any fault with the whole week-end, we had a brilliant time.
